Nobel laureates by university affiliation


Nobel laureates by university affiliation

__NOTOC__The following list provides information on nobel laureates and their affiliation to academic institutions.

There has been controversy surrounding the question of which institution was key to the contribution for which each respective nobel laureate was honored. Each institution practices different methods for counting affiliates, from extremely generous counting to extremely conservative counting. The present list only speaks of affiliation and indicates how the laureate was or is related to the respective institution; it does not clarify where the honored work was completed. The number of nobel prize graduates may be a good indicator, because its people are not repeated on other nobel prize graduate lists as much as other catergories. By presenting the most complete picture, one can distinguish organizational influence.

The University of London as a total has 56 Nobel Laurates (70 including Imperial College which left the federal University in 2007), however they are counted by individual constituent college unlike the University of Paris in this graph.

A list of laureates' university affiliations is also maintained by the Nobel Foundation which defines the awards by the affiliation at the time of the award. [http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/lists/universities.html]

Notes

#For the purpose of this ranking, "affiliation" is defined by the broadest possible terms to avoid any discussion on the parameters of an affiliation. Therefore, an affiliate is a Nobel laureate who can be classified as attendee, graduate, researcher or member of the academic staff at or of the respective institution. Laureates who qualify for several categories are only counted once.
#Any laureate who received a degree from the academic institution.
#Any laureate who attended at least one course or conducted research at the institution, but did not receive a degree from it.
#Any laureate who was a member of the respective institution's academic staff before or during receiving the prize. The degree of affiliation (adjunct, visiting, tenured etc.) is irrelevant for these purposes.
#Any laureate who was a member of the respective institution's academic staff only after receiving the prize. The degree of affiliation (adjunct, visiting, tenured etc.) is irrelevant for these purposes.
# A star (#) indicates a Nobel laureate who has more than one affiliation to the respective institution. To be counted only once.
# The Nobel Committee has their own list at [http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/lists/universities.html http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/lists/universities.html] which lists the university the Prize Winners were affiliated with at the time of the Prize announcement.
